In their largest disbursement of at least the past 15 years, the trustees of the Neighborhood Jobs Trust (NJT) approved the dispersal of $2.7 million to 30 local job training and education programs that serve low- and middle-income residents. These funds are expected to help grantee programs leverage an additional $7.7 million and prepare an estimated 3,200 trainees for such sectors as technology, culinary, healthcare, and human services. 

The grant recipients were selected through an open Request for Proposals (RFP) process. They include three first-time recipients of NJT funds: Haitian Multi-Service Center, Immigrant Family Services Institute, and X-Cel Education.

See the City of Boston press release for the complete lists of grant recipients.
